*Secret Video* Perps ID’d in stolen minimum wage signature petitions

Signature sheets stolen from a signature gatherer in support of putting a higher minimum wage to vote are returned. SDPD knows who the perps are.

When the San Diego City Council President Todd Gloria surrounded himself with the purple shirts of SEIU and other unions to stop his city minimum wage increases from going to the public vote he promised,  he took command of a formidable army.

An army whose thug tactics are as ubiquitous as their purple shirts. And their mission? Stop people from signing the petitions to refer the minimum wage to voters, an action to which he, the unions and his allies on the council–including former mayoral candidate David Alvarez–were opposed. 

After saying he would take minimum wage to voters, Todd Gloria reversed himself. Now Gloria and the SEIU and other unions are vowing to stop people from signing referendum petitions. Gee, what could possibly go wrong?

And, as predicted, thuggery ensued. One signature gatherer had four sheets of signatures stolen with a note left behind reading:

Sorry Bud! It’s all fair in love and war.

Well, actually it’s not a fairness issue as it turns out. It’s a crime. This 10News report records the theft of the four sheets–130 signatures in all–by opponents of the public vote.

      But the identity thieves and election fraud perps apparently had a change of heart–after they realized they’d been fingered. From the pro vote small business group’s chief, Jason Roe,

The two that stole the signatures were spotted at Clairemont Target last week and police were notified.  Police found them, got their info, and informed them that the case would be referred to the DA.  The next day, the signatures magically reappeared at one of our locations, propped against the door.

What happened to those signatures, by the way? I wonder if this episode would intimidate any future signers if they know their personal information will become the stolen fodder for union folks who might work for the city? Were those people’s information compromised in any way like the homeowners’ who crossed paths with the San Diego County worker recently? 

And the thuggery continues. Watch this secret video from the pro vote group of how the SEIU and other union members scream and yell to intimidate people into NOT signing the petition putting the issue to a vote. 

Can you imagine being a shopper at the store with one guy asking you to sign a petition with one person yelling and another positioning their sign by the signature gatherer calling him a liar? Me? I’d tell off whoever was in my face, but not everyone can do that. SEIU is expecting you to act meekly, even if they do not hew to the same standards. 

ObamaCare Fallout: Radical SEIU Union Goes for More Control Over Oregon Hospitals

The entire state of Oregon is under ONE SEIU bargaining unit. SEIU is the category killer of unions.
The entire state of Oregon is under ONE SEIU bargaining unit. SEIU is the category killer of unions. Local 49 is for health care workers.

One of the same unions that just  paralyzed San Francisco Bay area commuters now wants to take more control over Oregon health care and hospitals. And low information voters, sadly, are dumb enough enough to let them.

According to the Zero (here) the SEIU will soon begin signature gathering to place several measures on the November 2014 ballot that they call “Act for a Healthy Oregon. According to the paper, the measures would install, 

  • Executive compensation caps limiting hospital chief executive salary to 15 times the salary of the lowest­-paid employee
  • Requirement for hospitals to spend a minimum of 5 percent of service costs on charity care for low-income patients
  • Requirement for hospitals to publicly post their typical costs for common procedures.
  • Price limits for larger hospitals.
  • Requirement for public posting of quality of care data by hospitals.

ACT NOW FOR A HEALTHY OREGON

SEIU proposes to take over what’s left of the autonomy of hospitals after ObamaCare and begin dictating where and how much the hospitals may spend the money. Then, the measures would institute price and executive wage controls as a paean to the Occupy crowd.

Hospitals already give away millions of dollars in free care, although the Oregonian reports that figure has dropped significantly during the recession. But SEIU is hoping that by floating this idea, everybody will forget about all the self serving stuff the far left union is proposing.

SEIU PURPLE SHIRTS OREGON 503
These guys want to be in charge of your hospital and health care.

SEIU has one thing in mind: getting more members and more power. 

Here’s what they claim on their website:

  • We are one of the biggest defenders of Medicaid and Medicare funding
  • We played a pivotal role in winning the landmark Affordable Care Act, which is bringing quality, affordable healthcare to all Oregonians.

The first bullet point is ridiculous. Doctors advocate most for Medicaid and Medicare funding. The second is the reason these people can’t be trusted with your health care. 

Would you like the purple shirts of SEIU  to have more control over your health care? The Governor has already given his blessing for union stewards in all Kaiser hospitals, pushing our health care and health care and hospital costs into the grasp of the most radical union this side of the wobblies. 

Here’s a highlight reel. Remember when they attacked the black Tea Party guy selling T shirts?

These are the people who want more control over Oregon’s hospitals. And if they don’t get what they want? 

Or would YOU like more control over your health care? Liberty loving folks would say the latter. To do that you’ve got to get government out of it. Getting rid of ObamaCare is for starters. And second? Keep these far left, violent unionistas out of your hospitals and away from vulnerable patients. 

Do NOT sign their petitions.
